My name is Connie Clark and I have been painting since 1972. I closed my gift shop at the end of 2007 to focus fulltime on my art career.
I have my own line of Decorative Painting pattern packets and I have taught classes at the Southwestern Ontario Paint In, Coast to Coast Convention as well as the Kaswood Convention.
I am a member of The Society of Decorative Painters as well as our local quild Loyalist Decorative Painters and have served as President, Big Brush Chair and also Program Chair. We recently started an SDP Chapter in our area called the Bay of Quinte Chapter and I am secretary of that chapter
I have been fortunate in the last few years to take classes from some of our well known teachers. Maureen McNaughton, David Jansen, Linda Wise, Helen Barrick, Helen Jeglic, Sue Pruett, Neadeen Masters,Cheri Rol, Louise Jackson to name a few.
Over the last three years I have been participating in the Traditions Educational Program. I have completed my Traditions Artist and Traditions Teacher designations and in January of this year was one of three new Heritage Artists appointed for 2008. As a registered Traditions Teacher I am teaching the Modules to a group of local artists who are currently working on Module D.
